Here are the three things you need to keep in mind as you prepare to outsource your development.
There’s nothing worse than trusting that a project will be completed on time … only to learn two days before the deadline that it’s going to be another four weeks. Yes, you’ve probably been there. It’s not a fun place. In fact, it can be incredibly costly.
Missed deadlines, lack of communication, even abandoned projects — these are some of the widespread fears of contracting and outsourcing. When you outsource, you put your development in the hands of someone who isn’t on your payroll full-time. That means they may be working on other projects for other clients. You need to be able to trust your outsourced developer and know that you’ll have their best work and full attention when you need them.
With the average U.S.-based developer commanding top dollar plus benefits, it’s no surprise that one of the top reasons for outsourcing development is cost. Outsourcing internationally could cut your development costs in half if you find the right developer in the right country.
Not every country offers the same cost savings. Eastern Europe might offer you savings compared to U.S.-based developers. Latin America could be an even better bargain.
You want to know you are getting high-quality work, right? Anyone can say they have development experience. But how well is that talk going to hold up on your business’s website or app?
As important as cost is, you also don’t want to be stuck with a subpar product for the next several years. That leads to troublesome workarounds and fixes, poor experiences for customers and your team, and maybe even an expensive rebuild. You have to get it right the first time by working with a trusted and vetted developer who brings all the skills and knowledge you need.
So now that you understand the three essentials of outsourcing well, you may be asking, “Where should I outsource?”
